Most intense storms on record

This list includes Western Pacific storms with pressures of less than 885 mb and Atlantic, Eastern Pacific and South Pacific storms with pressure of less than 915 mb. Additional Western Pacific storms with pressures between 885 and 915 mb have been recorded, but these storms are neither exceptional for that basin nor all reliably measured. As for Indian Ocean storms, pressure readings are too scarce or too inaccurate to make a list reliable.


As a result of the omissions of many Western Pacific storms, many storms near the bottom of the list are not numerically ranked.

Notes:

  • *Minimum central pressure of these storms was estimated based on satellite data rather than directly measured.
  • **Official estimate. JTWC estimated 879 mbar.
  • ***Official estimate. JTWC estimated 879 mbar and unofficial estimates were 869 mbar (which would make it the most intense recorded tropical cyclone).
  • ****Official estimate. JTWC estimated 898 mbar.

In addition, Hurricane Wilma was likely also the most intense storm ever recorded while at Category 4 intensity with a pressure of 894 mb at that time - which in itself would be the fourth most intense Atlantic hurricane on record. [citation needed]

Highest storm surge

The three powerful hurricanes listed below caused very high storm surge. Hurricane Katrina had the highest recorded storm surge of any Atlantic hurricane and Hurricane Camille had the second-highest. Worldwide storm surge data is sparse. Cyclone Mahina is generally regarded as having had the highest storm surge ever recorded, although measurements from before modern times must be viewed with some skepticism.

Storm surge is enhanced by high winds and greater storm size. The shape of the coastline and the contour of the bottom near the coast are also significant factors. Hurricane Katrina was the largest Category 5 hurricane recorded in the Atlantic, and Hurricane Camille tied for the highest recorded windspeed; both struck an area vulnerable to high storm surge because of the shallow coastal waters. ...
